Newcastle United fans are eager to see the club move for Iceland striker Alfred Finnbogason this summer after his massive goal against Argentina in the World Cup this weekend.
The Augsburg forward netted an equaliser against the fancied South American outfit, securing a vital point that could go a long way towards their qualification for the knockout stages of the summer tournament.
Finnbogason has been linked with a move to the Magpies as recently as this month, with The Evening Chronicle reporting that he was one of the players the club were interested in as an alternative to Aleksandar Mitrovic.
Newcastle supporters are certainly keen, believing he possesses the qualities that could make him a hit at St James’ Park.
The Iceland star scored 12 goals in Bundesliga last season for relegation threatened Augsburg, perhaps demonstrating he can play at the level Rafa Benitez is looking for.
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on a potential move after his Saturday performance…
Icelands Alfred Finnbogason could be nice fit for #NUFC : Fast, Strong, Always threat in box, good work ethic. Scored 12 goals for Ausburg at Bundesliga, current matket value around 10M.
